"I took this outside of Saxis, Va. on the Eastern Shore. I love the Bay for its beauty, the food it provides, the relaxation it provides just sitting by it or on it in any manner of floatation as well as the unbelievable ecosystem it is. It is one of my favorite places to be--by the Bay and in Saxis, in particular, because of the wild beauty of the salt marshes here.
[This photo, in particular, is of] some soft-shell crab shedding houses in Saxis. It was taken about three years ago as we left the marina to go out for the day. Today it doesn't look like this because Hurricane Sandy took the shedding houses and the surrounding tanks as well as the seawall and much of the landing. I am really glad I got this shot since I cannot see this in person any more."
